Angau Hospital, Lae PNG


Location: Lae, Papua New Guinea

Client: CPB Contractors, Beavis & Bartels Pty. Ltd.


  • Determination of appropriate seismic loads for this project
  • Structural design of services within a prefabricated medical gas container
  • Seismic design and certification of mechanical, electrical, fire protection and hydraulic services

Design considerations:

  • This region experiences frequent earthquakes, and building services must be designed to accommodate large seismic design loads
  • Due to COVID 19 travel restrictions, physical inspections were not possible. KUSCH worked alongside the site team to ensure and remotely certify that the installed seismic bracing achieved the seismic design requirements.

Project Features: The Angau Memorial Hospital provides critical services for the city of Lae, which is one of the largest in Papua New Guinea, as well as the broader Momase region.
